Thank you for your lovely comments............

Well I am now happy and come to the conclusion that I have made the right decision about giving up my allotment in October.

I had a very nasty fall almost three months ago and am still suffering from a bursa on my hip where I 'impaled' ,myself on a sawn off conifer branch (in the garden hedge)!  How silly was that!  So the decision was made for me really!

It convinced me that I have enough fruit bushes, and strawberry plants to keep us in fruit supplies most (if no all) of the winter!  I have some raised beds for next year's potatoes and other veggies,  and the fruit cage is absolutely bursting with strawberries, blackcurrants, and rhubarb!   I have already made lots and lots of jams, and am still freezing the fruit for winter!  When I can scrounge a lift from Mr Lottie,  I have gooseberry bushes groaning with fruit ready to be picked, (hopefully not already been picked by other humans up there, but hoping that the netting will deter them!)

So I'll be back as soon as I can with any further news I hope!  Thanks for popping in to see me!

Goodbye Allotment

I have decided to give up my allotment plot at the end of the year.   Things have changed up on the site.  More people, which isn't a bad thing, but petty thefts/destruction, and lots of discontent.  It's just not the happy and easy going place that it used to be!

But the good news is that I am now growing quite a bit in my garden.  I have taken cuttings of fruit bushes, rhubarb, etc, and they are all growing very nicely.  I will only grow enough for the two of use, and not spend a lot of time processing the crops, cooking and freezing them. 

It's time to spend more time just having fun.

I'll be back soon with photos from the garden 'plot'.

Thank you for visiting.
